Here We Go Again
DAY: MD + 6 weeks
Well, here we are again. Getting ready to go riding around the country trying to raise awareness and money for THE CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK. We made the goal set by the CMN last year, but we missed the rider’s goal by “Just that much.” So we decided that we would give it another shot. We have most of the same crew from last year. Larry, Brice, and Tim could not be with us physically, but they are here.
Got some new guys! Since we were all newbies last year we had to pick on each other, this year we have 6 rookies to pick on. It’s going to be fun!! Kevin Simms, Brad Hansen, Hank Lewis, Pat Carpenter, Gary McDowell, and Vernon Griggs. You will hear much more about them before it’s all over.
We have been doing the picture and video thing again this year (and we have not gotten any prettier than last year), we have done a little safety check-out ride, we went to the kick off lunch, and been to 3-4 rider meetings. Now 6 weeks away we start thinking about getting bikes ready, packing, and hitting the TV and radio stations so you can see our smiling faces or hear our beautiful voices at O Dark 30 in the morning.
Got a few new things planned for this year. The biggest of the new things is the Birthday Party for Scott. We will have two parties going at the same time, one here in Columbus, and one in York Harbor Maine. We will use SKYPE to broadcast back and forth so we can see and talk to ya’ll and you can do the same with us. Keep May 21st open and plan to be at Country’s at Main Street about 5 in the afternoon. You’ll hear more about it, but I can tell you the OFFICIAL SCOTT BOBBLE HEAD will be available that day!
We will again visit a CMN hospital or two or three. Still working out the details of where and when.
I told you last year you would have to put up with us till we reach our goal, so either make the check out to the Children’s Miracle Network or be prepared for more. Seriously, the little ones need everyone’s help, please do whatever you can.
